Flickr for iOS now lets you tag friends, save shots to camera roll and upload photos faster

It was late last year that Flickr for iOS underwent a major makeover as part of Marissa Mayer's vision to revitalize Yahoo products, and today the app's on the receiving end of what's perhaps its most notable update since. The refreshed application will now let iDevice owners easily mention Flickr friends by way of -- you guessed it -- that ubiquitous "@," while the new version also brings speedier photo uploads, an option to save shots from your own Photostream to the iOS camera roll and the ability to quickly snap a picture using the volume button. In addition to that, the Flickr app now also allows users to gawk at higher-res pics in the Lightbox View, which should be a feature nicely welcomed by those who like to call themselves pixel buffs. Version 2.10.803, as it's more formally known, is now live in the App Store, so head on to Cupertino's shop if you're eager to try out the free goods.
